On August 23rd, we met with a new local contractor and signed papers to begin the work on the maternity building of our medical center.
The contractor and his team are located in Banfora, about 100 kilometers from our village. At the signing, we made the first payment in the agreed upon contract and on Aug 25th, the masons and a team of manual laborers arrived in Kimini, ready to begin the work.
The very first steps are to make the concrete bricks on-site, clear the land, and identify the placement of the building. These steps were all started last week and already, we can see the foundation being laid for the maternity building.
